Complimentary activities on a cruise ship

Complimentary activities on a cruise ship

The value-added benefits of a cruise are well known to devotees of this holiday of choice but for new passengers enlisting for this type of break, the realisation that activities, enrichment, entertainment and as much food as you can eat are included, makes it a no-brainer.

With a reputation for showcasing the finest speakers at sea Cunard’s ‘Insights’ programme offers the chance to listen to the great and the good. The roster of high-calibre speakers includes businessman and politician Lord Digby Jones; actors Claire Bloom, Robert Powell and Connie Fisher; journalist and author Sir Max Hastings; former Governor of the Bank of England Lord Mervyn King; Olympic champion Sally Gunnell; BandAid founder Midge Ure; travel writer Bill Bryson; and crime writer Peter James.

Lovers of Karaoke can belt out their favourite tunes at the On Air Club aboard Royal Caribbean’s Independence of the Seas, equipped with theatrical lighting, video cameras, flat-screen monitors and ‘green screen’ for aspiring X-Factor contestants to record their own video.

Aboard Norwegian Breakaway there’s the chance to see the Broadway musical ‘Rock of Ages,’ as well as the ever-popular ‘Burn the Floor’ - a dance revue show that is slickly choreographed, extremely energetic and ideal for fans of Strictly Come Dancing. On Royal Caribbean ships West End standard performances of ‘Hairspray’, ‘Cats,’ ‘Mamma Mia!’ and ‘Saturday Night Fever’ bring the house down – the curtain call is even more appreciated when passengers realise such high quality performances aren’t costing a penny extra.

One culinary fad that’s been increasingly promoted by cruise lines are food-themed cruises where the emphasis is on epicurean delights as much as idyllic destinations. P&O Cruises’ ‘Food Hero’ cruises have raised the bar by celebrating the best of British cuisine. Among the brightest lights of the British culinary scene, each ‘Food Hero’ creates an exciting array of dishes to suit all tastes. This on-trend concept not only ensures the cuisine goes up a notch or two, guest chefs revel in this schmooze fest by talking shop and sharing a laugh – but the laugh’s on you when you realise all these top-notch culinary treats don’t come with a bill.

MSC Meraviglia has taken the cruise world by storm. There are two F1 Simulators, a 5D cinema and Flight Simulator plus an onboard Aqua Park that features four water slides, splash pool and champagne bowl. Really brave passengers can attach themselves to a rope and cross the ship, 196-feet above the water, on the ‘Himalayan Bridge’. Imagine what these attractions would cost at a theme park on land for a family needing to be entertained from morning ‘till night?
